White Cube presents the first European solo exhibition by Harmony Hammond (b.1944, Chicago). The American artist, curator, author and [queer feminist] activist was a pivotal figure of the feminist art movement in New York, co-founding in 1972, A.I.R., the first women’s cooperative art gallery in the city, and the journal Heresies: A Feminist Publication on Art and Politics in 1977.
Hammond’s earliest feminist work combined gender politics with Post-Minimalist concerns for material and process, frequently occupying a space between painting and sculpture – a focus that continues to this day.
